A calico cat would come to a store in Nashville, TN, every day for more than a week, doing her best to get attention. The shop owner, L.J., fed the animal, unaware that the kitty was not alone.
L.J. decided to re-home the cat before the cold weather came in and turned to Jenn, a foster volunteer of Metro Animal Care and Control for help. Jenn asked to keep the cat until she arrived but the animal was nowhere to be found that day.
"Last week in Nashville, we experienced record cold temperatures and ice/snow. The shop owner was so worried about the cat that she went looking for her," the volunteer recalls.
Then L.J. went looking for her and soon found out that the cat had been caring for a kitten all this time. They lived in a wooden building where the mother cat had dug a deep hole to hide with the baby.
The animals were placed with a foster family, where they were given names. The mother cat was named Pepper and her baby was named Jarvis.
First, the fluffy ones felt a little nervous in the temporary home, but they soon appreciated home life, toys, and tasty food.
"Pepper is just like a kitten when she plays with Jarvis as they run around the house and wrestle with each other. After tiring themselves out, they will curl up in a bed together and fall asleep snuggling," the volunteer said.
